The Imagination of the Heart
By

Rating
The final chapter in the saga of Sailor Ripley and Lula Pace Fortune. Their story began in Gifford's Wild at Heart, which in 1990 was made into a Palme d'Or-winning feature film by David Lynch. Following Sailor's death at the age of 65 in New Orleans, Lula moves back home to North Carolina. This novel begins 15 years later when Lula, now aged 80, decides to write a memoir reflecting her life with Sailor and describing her last road trip. Like a contemporary book of Revelations, it becomes a bittersweet, often dangerous, journey into the imagination of the heart.

About the Author

The author of more than forty works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, which have been translated into over twenty-five languages, BARRY GIFFORD writes distinctly American stories for readers around the globe. From screenplays and librettos to his acclaimed Sailor and Lula novels, Gifford's writing is as distinctive as it is difficult to classify. Born in the Seneca Hotel on Chicago's Near North Side, he relocated in his adolescence to New Orleans. The move proved significant: throughout his career, Gifford's fiction--part-noir, part-picaresque, always entertaining--is born of the clash between what he has referred to as his "Northern Side" and "Southern Side." Gifford has been recipient of awards from PEN, the National Endowment for the Arts, the American Library Association, the Writers Guild of America and the Christopher Isherwood Foundation. His novel "Wild at Heart" was adapted into the 1990 Palme d'Or-winning film of the same name. Gifford lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. "From the Trade Paperback edition."
